In the Swiss MedTech Center (SMTC), research, medicine and industry work on interdisciplinary innovation projects in the fields of medical technology and health technology. Internal research and engineering resources are complemented by specialists from our national and international partner network to form a team.
Our main goal is to develop and implement new technologies in medtech and healthtech. Furthermore, we look for new applications for the technology in the medical field and investigate the effects on patients, health care professionals, the medical environment and the health care system. To achieve these goals, the new SMTC – Innovation Lab, an inspiring, theme-based showroom for applied research, partner acquisition, events, and technology demonstrations, plays a central role in the SMTC. We position ourselves in the interface between humans, technology and environment to complement mainly technology driven research partners.
